    I believe everything happens

    for a reason. People change so you can learn how to let go. Things go wrong, so that you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies, so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    To start with kindness,

    is at times hard, but I keep envisioning my mother's smile, in between soft words that bring me warmth. She was a mother, in ever way, but to those who envy, she simply was, a kind grandma. Her last words to me were all I ever hoped for, but she could not speak them, in front of...

    Some people believe they were born in the wrong

    place or in the wrong time period. based on personality, I guess that could be so. But you are a combination of each of your parents. If they had not conceived during the month that they did, you may not have ever been. Everything happens for a reason. You were born here and now...

    Okay let me see if I can get this right.

    I know it seems hard to believe but everything truly does happen for reason. I myself can attest to this, things really do happen for reason. There is a divine order to things a path that almost seems you can't get off of. We fool ourselves into thinking that we have made our...
